One very excited Paige packed her bags and headed off on her French Trip last Friday...
She was jumping out of her skin with excitement by the time we got to the airport and there her girlfriends were no better LOL!
What a happy bunch of friends they are.
They arrived safely after an over night stay in Dubai. So off they set.... and have ridden around Paris on push bikes and been to a heap of flea markets....
Eifel tower etc....
then off to the south of France to Toulon to go to school. Paige will be staying with Alma, our French Exchange Student from last year and with whom we stayed with her family when we were there in April.... such lovely people and its so reassuring knowing where she will be.
What an adventure
Back here at home......
Still plodding along with my Project Life album... (yippee!! Getting towards the end of July now!!)
Paige's Dance Class in our studio....
The week that Julie and Asher came to stay with us!
I was really busy with Dance 'stuff' for a few days but Julie still got out and about with Asher and Hannah. Hannah had a lovely time having them to herself.
THEN.... we set off on our SNOW adventure to Cradle Mountain! What fun we had!!!! The mountain turned on a big snow dump for Julie and Asher... it could not have been better! The lake had iced completely over and even the little Tasmanian wildlife creatures came out to play. Sure was a huge contrast to the warmer climate of Western Australia!
At long last the dance competitions start and we just kept reeling in the 1st's! What a successful time, due to a lot of hard work and preparation. The students deserved the awards. This page is snippets of the dances that Paige was involved in.
Weeeell, busy still.... tonight we have casting calls for the ballet 'Coppelia'
then afterwards we are off to the theatre to see the Russian Ballet performing a Triple Bill of their favourites....
THen tomorrow night we are also off to the Art Dinner at the Gallery which displays works from our states best artists to vie for a major prize of $10,000. Its always a great night and one of my close friends has a painting up for a chance. I haven't seen it yet, so that's exciting. Its a chance to dress up...and its the first time Hannah has attended too .
Hope to get some pics!!!
